I’ll start off by saying that everything I have to contribute comes from a north of the border perspective. I don’t know much about the local politics about what happens in Maine or farther south. Also, I’m not intending to offend or confront anyone. Sometimes I unintentionally come off that way. Not really what I’m into right now.
“200-400 years ago” is a good place to start. Indigenous people in canada suffered under the brittish government, and have been suffering up to the current day under globalist and several other layers of bureaucracy (as most all of us do to some degree) and legislature (like the Indian Act). The last residential school in canada only closed in the mid 1990s, and those places can be infuriating to educate ones self on.
Some words that often come up in these discussions are reconciliation and decolonization. I agree that from my current knowledge today, the solutions to colonization in South Africa leave much to be desired. - A solution needs to be found that’s in my opinion in the spirit of the two rowed wampum. Something that serves to correct as well as possible the injustices of the past. But which also doesn’t serve to evict non-indigenous people from at the very least our farms, homesteads and dwellings. Perhaps beginning with the return of what’s called crown land in canada (land the federal government administers) from the crown (queen administered through the canadian government) to the indigenous nations.
For anyone that wants to learn more. Here’s what wikipedia has to say about the re-emerging Wabanaki Confederacy.
